Lukid - Lonely At The Top

Expert aural psycho-geography
Lukid - Lonely At The Top

Something is troubling Lukid. Where once the producer specialised in house textures tainted with sadness, now only flecks of melancholia remain. Allowing urban surroundings to filter through his sub-conscious, ‘Lonely At The Top’ is expert aural psycho-geography. A survey of pain and redemption, the album’s cathartic themes are matched to Lukid’s painterly brush strokes and typically beautiful use of layered sound. Ending with the hopeful, glowing house tones of ‘Talk To Strangers’ the revolving themes unpick themselves slowly, leaving a lasting, lingering effect. A step forward in terms of production and vision, but no doubt at quite a personal cost to Lukid.

8/10
